The regulatory body will assess your qualifications and, if you qualify, will license, register, or certify you to practise your profession in Manitoba.
Each profession regulated in Manitoba is listed below. Follow the link to read the specific licensing steps.
The licensing process will cost you time and money. Your profession’s regulatory body may require you to take examinations, to improve your English, upgrade your education and do work assignments.
In Manitoba, it is against the law to work in certain professions if you are not registered with the regulatory body. For example, you cannot practise medicine without a licence.
In other professions you can work in that field but cannot use the professional title. For example, you can do accounting or bookkeeping but you must be registered with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Manitoba in order to use the title of chartered accountant.
Even if yours is a profession with mandatory licensing you may still be able to do related work. For example, you could work as a draftsman in an engineering office while you are in the process of getting your engineering licence.
- Trades such as carpenter, mason and electrician are regulated by a government department called Apprentice Manitoba.
